    Pros

    I worked at a somewhat independent research institute within the library; they did really important work. BIMC had great benefits and my team was great.

    Cons

    The hospital is really disorganized and silo'ed - getting anything administrative approved or resolved by central management for our institute was Kafkaesque. They managed the distribution of resources and space badly after Sandy, where several satellite departments and offices in the financial district were thrown into chaos because of the damage. I'm not sure what the merger with Mount Sinai holds for the future, however.

    I worked at Beth Israel Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best reason to work there was location.

    Cons

    The things that needed improvement were so easily fixed but the administration is so resistant to change and improvement. Low salaries and reluctance to be fiscal responsible on the other end. Brought new systems that didn't work well with each other. Made the work difficult for both staff and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask people who do the job what they think of the systems and do test studies before purchasing new products. Pay employees Closer to the market.

    Pros

    Good teaching environment, fast pace, decent pay, union job, good benefits. They are willing to train you and they offer a decent 6 week orientation. Physicians are friendly, you feel you are part of the family. Great team work and satisfaction at the end of a hectic day at work. Staffing is reasonable too. Self-scheduling works well.

    Cons

    Since the hospital merged with Mount Sinai in July 2013, everybody is in fear of losing their jobs; they already started to close down floors. Job insecurity is seeping into every aspect of the hospital life. Employees put all their hopes in the Union, thinking they will be repositioned, but we all know it is a false hope. Very sad, specially when people work so hard, with good results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will lose all the good employees. Don't let Mount Sinai wipe you out!

    I worked at Beth Israel Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits for the employees e.g. Wellness programs and the employee discounts.

    Cons

    Management needs to be more aware of their workers and what goes on in their respective departments.

    Some problems and issues drag on too long before being solved or taken care of.

    Listen to the employees, they have a voice to and should be heard

    Staff need to work together and stop trying to outdo each other at times

    Some staff needs to stop hiding behind the union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just listen and be aware of your department's needs. One piece of advice, maybe have more staff meetings where you can sit down with the your staff and hear ideas from them. Working together and putting forth ideas is a good way to have a more cohesive department that runs more smoothly.
